Now that Connor is getting to be a big boy, I'm starting to plan for the future. He's going to be taking baths in his own bathroom and learning to brush his teeth. We plan on renovating his bathroom/guest bathroom eventually, but for right now, I wanted to make it a little more fun and colorful for him. I love the bathroom rules signs I've seen and he's going to be at the perfect age to start learning these things soon.
I printed out some simple images with text that I thought would look cute on the signs. (Please forgive my crappy photos. The lighting must have been really bad when I was working on these.) I bought four 12" x 12" canvases to transfer the art on.
This is my secret way to transfer art. I take a pencil and scribble over the back of the paper that has the design on it.
Then I place the paper right onto the canvas and center it exactly how I want it to be. Then, I use a mechanical pencil without the lead to trace around the design. When I lift the paper, the design will be transferred onto the canvas!
I spent many, many hours watching tv and painting three coats on each canvas to make them really bold, but it was worth it!
I love how they turned out!
And since I'm matchy-matchy, the shower curtain colors go perfectly with the art.
And the comfy green rug matches too!
I can't wait for Connor to use his new, updated bathroom!
